Taking Stock + What the Groundhog Saw

What the groundhog saw + taking stock

Along with Groundhog Day, I’m told that February 2nd is the traditional day to check on what’s left in storage to see one through the rest of winter. With only six more weeks to the Spring Equinox, it’s a good time to start making plans for the next canning season!

  1. Uh, am I seeing snow up to the tops of the backs of those chairs? Crazy! Beautifully neat cupboard of home-canned foods. You put me to shame. Not showing you photos of my disorganized “stash.”

    Did you see my “Planting a Preserving Garden” course at Kittery Adult Ed? https://kittery.coursestorm.com/course/planting-a-preserving-garden?search=preserving

    I love the sound of that Sanford Growing and Preserving class. And beautiful canning pantry!

    Love your array of jars and a nice punch of color for your decor! Wish we could peek into your pantry, too. And, yes, we are having a great time visiting winter farmers’ markets during this long winter.
